As a young adult, scoring this job at the bar felt like the perfect fit for me! I was young, dumb, full of energy and enthusiasm, and I loved coming to the bar every night, but I’m not the same person I was then. With each year that passes, I am less and less satisfied with my job. The cash is still good, the drunks at this bar are good tippers, it just gets harder and harder to accept the fact that I may be a barmaid for the rest of my working life. It was a good job, but it’s an exhausting career. The air quality inside the bar is uniformly terrible, as is the case in most bars and clubs I have ever been to. The problem is that after working here for years, the terrible air quality has weakened my lungs, and now that air quality is harder to handle than ever before. In a few more years I may be incapable of handling this low air quality all together, so I have been suggesting better ways of utilizing ventilation systems in the bar. While the bar is equipped with central a/c, that mostly just recycles the same dirty air, so it doesn’t make a huge difference. No matter how often I swap out the air filters, it is never enough. I’ve discovered that we need to pump in fresh air from outside. These sort of ventilation systems are not particularly high-priced, I have come to find out, so I hope the bosses will spend money for them.
